A petition by an angry fan demanding that HBO remake the final season of “Game of Thrones” has now been signed by more than 300,000 people.

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are the target of the petition, which asserts that the pair, who have shepherded the HBO hit from the beginning, “have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on.” The show first moved beyond George R.R. Martin’s ongoing book series in the sixth season.

Game of Thrones fans are calling on HBO to remake the show’s final season , circulating a petition that is fast approaching one million signatures. The petition , entitled, “Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers,” has garnered over 800,000 signatures as of Friday morning.

The online petition, which was started on Change.org by a user called Dylan D., is titled “Remake ‘Game of Thrones’ season 8 with competent writers” and states that fans of the smash-hit show deserve “a final season that makes sense.”

The petition was created following Monday’s episode, “The Bells,” which drew strong negative reactions from fans online over the actions of Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s Jamie Lannister. In its review of the episode, Britain’s Telegraph newspaper said the series had been “ruined beyond repair.”

A petition to call on HBO to remake the eighth and the final season of " Game of Thrones " with new writers has surpassed half a million signatures. Season eight has faced increasingly negative reviews as episodes have aired, with many viewers criticizing the show's creators for rushing toward its ending

Game of Thrones Fans Call for 'Competent Writers' to Redo Season 8

Fan reaction to the final season of the epic fantasy drama has been mixed, with complaints targeting everything from character treatment to the cinematography.

Jessica Chastain was among celebrities calling out the show for its use of the rape and torture endured in previous seasons by Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) as reasons for her strength and cunning. “Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger. A woman doesn’t need to be victimized in order to become a butterfly,” said Chastain on Twitter following the airing of Episode 4, “The Last of the Starks.”

The third episode, “The Long Night,” came under heavy criticism for its lighting, with viewers complaining that it was difficult to discern what was happening. Polygon entertainment reporter Karen Han tweeted that it was “visually incomprehensible.”

Fans also lit up social media after a mistake in Episode 4 saw a takeout coffee cup appear on a table in front of Emilia Clarke, which was later digitally removed for the streaming version.

HBO Has Already Digitally Removed That Coffee Cup From Sunday's 'Game of Thrones' Episode

HBO Has Already Digitally Removed That Coffee Cup From Sunday's 'Game of Thrones' Episode Looks like Daenerys will have to get your caffeine fix another way, as HBO has already digitally removed the coffee cup that was seen sitting in front of Emilia Clarke's character on Sunday's episode of "Game of Thrones." A representative for the premium-cable channel told TheWrap Tuesday that the "latte" that was not meant to make it into Episode 804, "The Last of the Starks," has been edited out from the currently version available on HBO Go and will not be seen in any encore presentations, streaming on other platforms, in DVD sets, etc. going forward.

Following the penultimate episode of the massively popular HBO series ' Game of Thrones ,' a Change.org petition has surfaced urging the network to 'remake ' Game of Thrones ' Season 8 with competent writers.'

The online backlash is unlikely to faze HBO, however, given the massive viewing figures the show continues to generate. “The Bells” scored the highest ratings in the show’s history, watched by 12.5 million viewers in the U.S. on its initial broadcast and by 18.4 million across all HBO platforms. Regardless of negative reactions to that episode, its numbers seem sure to be surpassed by the season (and show) finale, which airs May 20.

Earlier this week, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that the next “Star Wars” movie, scheduled for release in December 2022, would be shepherded by Benioff and Weiss.

Dylan D., the petition’s creator, acknowledges how unlikely a successful outcome to his petition is with a final note that reads: “Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
